Creative Brief

This is a song in writing progress. I didn't played the samba groove because I don't want to fall completely into the Bossa Nova expected rhythm - considering the title - so I would love to have suggestions and interpretations of the feeling of this word. 

For those who doesn't know what Saudade mean, it's a unique word in my language:

The Avenues seem larger since you left

My clumsy heart can?t measure wistfulness

I close my eyes and melt in memories

The night is so aggressive, you?re not here

 

Saudade, saudade 

So hard to be lonely

Saudade, saudade

So warm to be longing

 

Saudade, saudade

I miss you so badly

Saudade, saudade

Next time will never be soon enough

 

There?s always something of you everywhere

I save the jokes just you would understand

My body keeps the passion of your touch

And when I think of you I always blush

 

Saudade, saudade 

So hard to be lonely

Saudade, saudade

So warm to be longing

 

Saudade, saudade

I miss you so badly

Saudade, saudade

 

Next time will never be soon enough

 

And I wonder what you're doing now

If you're happy or you're feeling down

Do you still think about me?

Can you feel my love from where you are?

 

Saudade, saudade 

So hard to be lonely

Saudade, saudade

So warm to be longing

 

Saudade, saudade

I miss you so badly

Saudade, saudade

 

 

Next time will never be soon enough
